Principle of the Assay: In the presence of acidic solution and reductant, ferric ions can be separated from transferrin in serum, and reduced into ferrous ions. The latter then bind to bipyridine and form pink complexes. The color develops in proportion to the amount of iron ions within a certain range.
Samples: Serum and plasma of animals.
